Making gradient white to black

Recommended Posts

Do you use the gradient tool? It appears in all sorts of places in AP. Are you a bit irritated with the default white-to-grey gradient? Would you prefer it to be white-to-black without having to click nodes and colour settings?

Here's how I do this. I don't know why it happens, but it's jolly handy.

In the gradient tool context toolbar, change Type to your choice, eg. Elliptical. Click on colour box. Drop-down box appears. Clicking on Gradient shows the default white to grey gradient line.

Here's the magic: Click on the 'None' tab and then the 'Gradient' tab. Ole! White to black gradient.
